Thought so the minute I saw that comment, just confirmed my suspicions. Thanks again Dr. Polymer.

ps. I would think that would go for many dust collectors that use Ozone as the method of ionizing the air to attract the dust. And I don't think ozone is exactly a nice thing to breathe on a constant basis.

To paraphrase Rodney Dangerfield, Oh that ozone. I had some of that and it was just crazy. But in my defense, I was on cocaine at the time.

Ah the stories never to be told. I recall some anecdotes on the other diy forum about famous musicians and their rather poor performance when Charlie was prevalent in the studios. Such a strange illusion of competence it conveys, and how misguided. I believe I could detect the deterioration in Bill Evans' playing when he fell prey --- the music was there, still brilliant playing, but the soul was mostly gone, whereas with his other famous Jones, habituation left something intact.

There but for the grace...

Miles, Joe Ferrell the list goes on. I could never understand what was in their minds when they basically tried to lose theirs.

Gander,
I've provided a parts list in a pdf file that lists where every part was obtained.
It's attached to post 242 earlier in this thread. Here's a direct link:

Parts List for Version 2 of BB's URC machine

Let me know if that doesn't answer your questions.
Cheers,

thanks to the fellow DIY'ers for the info and the inspiration.

still working on mine, but here's where I have done up to this point... most of the stuff is done, I just have to make it look nicer. The ultrasonic cleaner is a Crest 1.5 gal, motor is 1 rpm, DIY fabricated parts are made of .040" aluminum and .032 type 430BA stainless steel.

I cannot find some parts off the shelf, so I decided to make my own stopper, using a 1/4" thumb screw.

Thanks for the posting on your RCM. I noticed from the pictures you have the model which includes the heater. Do you ever use the heater in you cleaning? Are you still satisfied with the Sonix IV cleaner?

Hello HiFi,

Yes, my Sonix IV does include a heater and I do use it when cleaning LPs. As long as there is enough fluid in the tank (fluid level just above the shoulder line in the tank), the temperature in mine maxes out at 120F. This is not a problem for vinyl LPs, but I wouldn't let the bath get any hotter than that. Elevated temperature does help the cleaning action. But I do monitor the temperature very carefully and very frequently.
Given the way these units are made, I wouldn't trust every unit to max out at the same temperature, so testing and care is needed on each and every unit.

In general, I'm quite satisfied with the Sonix machine. 60kHz transducers are the biggest plus of this particular unit, as I think this cleaning action is most appropriate for LPs, both from a material perspective (60 kHz poses less risk for vinyl than 25 kHz or 40 kHz transducers) and from the ability to clean down to the bottom of the groove (cavitation bubble size of 60kHz transducers vs. 40 or 25 kHz).

Cheers,
B B
